Who want to defend
- Evans gambit with white
- Traxler counterattack with black?

I will be happy to play Silver Ligting game and try to kill that UCOs.

Wait and I will add more openings to that list. :)

Your 2 games Vs my two games I'll play Petrov,if you accept opening I'll accept Petrov If you play it

Hi, Phil! :)

I agree.

My suggestion is to play our games in that order:

1- Petrov's defence (I vs You)
2- Petrov's defence (I vs You)
3- Traxler counterattack (I vs You)
4- Evans gambit (You vs Me)

Let me to guess...
You mean that Petrov's defence games will be money games and I must win. And all games will be lighting games.

Four lighting games in a row - it will take at least seven hours. I have so much time only in holidays - Saturday and Sunday.

And we need help of Thibault to organize Petrov's defence and Evans gambit games.

Hi, Phil! :)

I hope I understood all correctly...

1- Petrov's defence (I vs You) 2- Petrov's defence (You Vs I) 3- Traxler counterattack (I vs You) 4- Evans gambit (You vs Me) See number 2,That makes 4 games? unless 3- Traxler counterattack (You Vs I) 4- Evans gambit (I Vs You) That makes 6,what time frames are we likely to be playing? As for the money,I think we donate to Ficgs, that way our games are fun,what do you think Ilmars.

Experience is good for me always. Even I don't get money.

I suggest play our games without any money stakes. I don't have enough money for donating. (Maybe after some years. :) )

As I understand, you want play all three openings by both side.
IMO Traxler counterattack is 1-0 and Evans gambit is 0-1. I don't wish play openings that I believe to be lost (with losing side).

I chose wrong heading for my last reply. I'm sorry.

Now to agree on what time limit to play,I'm usually online most (my nights Gmt +10 I'm in aussie till 31st May then back home NZ 1st June-11 June then back to aussie on that night,11 June) I'm not sure about traxler opening,but I think,I could get a drawn game Evens. Btw: The 2 Petrov lines to follow: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nxe5 * our 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nc3 * The donate is for Thibault,as he would have to setup the 4 games.

I don't have any money to donate.

I am only 19 years old. :)
